Venue location

Highfields Cultural Centre is located north of Toowoomba on O'Briens Road, Highfields, just outside of the city, giving you more room to park vehicles. If coming from Toowoomba, travel north along Ruthven Street, which then becomes the New England Highway. Proceed past Mt Kynoch lookout and continue straight ahead at the first set of traffic lights on Cawdor Road. Turn left at the second set of traffic lights, onto Highfields Road, then turn right onto Lauder drive. Our car park is on the left, just after the Woolworths Caltex Service Station.
